Middletown, OH—Troopers from the Ohio State Highway Patrol (OSHP) are investigating an incident that left a driver and passenger injured Tuesday, September 7, 2010. A WLWT report stated an object, which has yet to be found or identified, crashed into the windshield of a car as it traveled along Interstate 75.
OSHP officials stated Penny Coffman was driving her car in the northbound lanes of I-75 when an unidentified object smashed into the vehicle’s windshield, practically crushing it on impact.
“I put my hand up, and that’s what helped protect my face… God put his hand out and stopped from taking our heads off,” Coffman alleged.
Emergency medical services (EMS) personnel subsequently transported Coffman and her passenger, Linda Angel to Dayton-based Miami Valley Hospital for treatment.
Injuries sustained in the strange accident reportedly included scrapes and contusions. One of the victims apparently fractured her hand as well. They were reportedly en route to their homes in Michigan at the time.
Investigators seem to believe a vehicle traveling southbound lost one of its tires. The tire then could have bounced over the median and smashed into Coffman’s car. However, the suspected tire has yet to be found.
Witnesses or any other individuals with information concerning the bizarre crash are urged to contact the State Highway Patrol at (513) 932-4444.
